QICSS - McGill branch
This facility is located on the campus of McGill University and is attached to the Quebec Inter-University Centre for Social Statistics (QICSS). Its creation was made possible by a Canada Research Chair in Social Statistics and Family Change awarded to Céline Le Bourdais in the Fall of 2004 along with a grant from the Canada Foundation for Innovation (CFI).
The opening of a branch at McGill brings the data and resources closer to the researchers of both McGill and Concordia universities. It also offers statistical training and interdisciplinary dialogue across both campuses in order to ensure that studies conducted there make the best use of the data and have the widest impact possible on the academic community, societal organizations and policy makers.
